Default I need Ball Joints!

I just found out that my front end clunk is the lower driver's side ball joint, I also found out my pass side upper is just starting to go as well. Roughly, how long do I have before the driver's side fails completely? I have a 80 mile round trip to make today and 3.5 miles (7 miles both ways) of it are extremely bumpy!

Default Re: I need Ball Joints!

there prolly isnt any set standard time that they will last or fail. You could hit a big bump the wrong way and it go right then or it could last for awhile, theres really no way to honestly 100 percent know. Id def be worried about the 7 miles of extremely bumpy terrain.
